Fires are very dangerous disasters that cause immediate damage and put the lives of those in the home or building at risk. Once the fire is put out, the damage has not stopped as the leftover smoke, soot, and other corrosive residue are still present and will continue to cause additional damage. The structural damage caused by a fire can lead to additional damage or collapse and the damage from smoke and soot can become permanent, making it important to call our restoration professionals as soon as the fire is out.

Damage Caused by Fire and Smoke
The damage caused by a fire is extensive because smoke, soot, and other corrosive byproducts will cause damage in addition to the flames. The fire itself will burn through structural materials and furnishings and the burning of synthetic materials creates soot and residue that can cause serious, sometimes permanent damage. Even after the fire is out, soot and smoke will spread throughout the property, causing tarnishing and etching to the affected materials. In many cases, these elements will spread beyond where the fire itself reached.
The other major issue caused by fires is the lingering smoke odor. Smoke from a fire has a strong, pungent odor and it hangs around after a fire because the odor particles get absorbed into porous building materials and furnishings. The only way to remove these odors is to extract and neutralize the odor particles using advanced deodorization equipment. Using household remedies will only cover the smell, it will still remain on your property.
